Wow. Check out the report-card poll below. And especially note how the media is rated :-)

Go to:
http://reportcard.cnn.com/

Note that there are several questions you can click on to see the grades on various topics.
Note the combined number of the F's and D's across the board.

    I noticed that no state or district had an average grade of higher than a B for any of the questions....

Specter switches parties: announces he has more in common with democrats than with republicans...

and in other breaking news-

New research: turtles not really all that fast.

Stay tuned here for more breaking news stories as they develop...
  • laurar209
    I woke up to NPR interviewing various Pennsylvanians about Specter; one Libertarian was like, "All this marks is the official change -- he's been voting and acting Democratic all along, so I'm not surprised."

    Someone threw Richard Simmons out of some place? About time! They probably couldn't take his shorts.

4 year old William Summers from Morgantown (his folks visit here occasionally), is one of three finalists in a grandchild/grandparent photo contest for a $5000 scholarship. Please go to the site and check out his pic. He and his grandad are by a wheel (region three winner). Go Will go!

    Check.

    And now I'm laughing that I just voted for a picture without even really studying the competition to see if it was better. I feel rather dishonest.

  • nthnswmn
    It really was the best photo, too, in my opinion. Sweet. Be sure to let us know how it turns out.

    Done! Don't worry, it was the best!

  • daddio6
    Be sure to click larger format for the larger pic so you can see what he's doing. It is the best pic for the theme (IMHO).

  • mr_and_mrs_berry
    It was the best, but you can only vote once from a computer so only one of us could vote.

  • benb
    agreed that it's the best, hands-down. but when i tried to vote it said my vote had already been counted. very strange. but i bet he'll win anyway.

    I agree. Doesn't seem like his kind of humor.

    Hijack detection is correct, spurious entry has been deleted. Adam is home for the week and is presumed guilty.

    Daniel and I are going to a tournament in Arkansas next week. They're a lot of fun. If you go to one, they'll be happy to have you judge a debate or speech round.
